Article Processing Charges include the costs associated with editorial fee, manuscript handling charges, copy editing, conversion of your manuscript into various formats (PDF & HTML), online publication and permanently archiving it on the journal website.
Article Processing Charge (APC)
The standard Article Processing Charge (APC) is USD 1000. However, based on certain parameters like article type or corresponding author's country we offer special discounts by default.
Once the manuscript review is completed from the editorial department, an authorization email is sent to the author intimating the acceptance of the material for publication along with the payment details and mode. We expect advance payment in a week in due of acceptance. For any delays, the author can contact the editor in advance via an email, requesting for the grace period.
After payment, the author is requested to share the payment screenshot or scanned copy duly signed via an email along with the listed information.
- Author’s name
- Payment transaction ID / Transaction details
